Fasoracetam is a new and promising racetam nootropic that’s being developed as a potential ADHD treatment. It may also help relieve anxiety, lift depression, and enhance memory and cognition.
Fasoracetam may improve mood, reduce anxiety, and lift depression by acting on two of the brain’s most powerful mood-influencing chemicals, glutamate and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
By simultaneously up-regulating GABA, which is an inhibitory neurotransmitter, and suppressing the excess production of the excitatory neurotransmitter glutamate, fasoracetam provides what users describe as a smooth, non-jittery feeling of improved mood, relaxation, and calmness.
Many users report that fasoracetam has helped them during withdrawal from GABA-related CNS depressants gabapentin, phenibut,2 and GHB (gamma-hydroxybutyric acid).
It’s important to note that there is no documented research on the efficacy or safety of this use of fasoracetam.
